• The promise of quantum computers is that certain computational tasks might be executed exponentially faster on a quantum processor than on a classical processor. A fundamental challenge is to build a high-fidelity processor capable of running quantum algorithms in an exponentially large computational space. Here we report the use of a processor with programmable superconducting qubits to create quantum states on 53 qubits, corresponding to a computational state-space of dimension 253 (about 1016).

    Measurements from repeated experiments sample the resulting probability distribution, which we verify using classical simulations. Our Sycamore processor takes about 200 seconds to sample one instance of a quantum circuit a million times—our benchmarks currently indicate that the equivalent task for a state-of-the-art classical supercomputer would take approximately 10,000 years.

    This dramatic increase in speed compared to all known classical algorithms is an experimental realization of quantum supremacy for this specific computational task, heralding a much-anticipated computing paradigm. (Bold added.) Nature

    Huge money is involved in all this, so counterclaims that Google is grossly exaggerating abound. But as far as a sign of “an increase of knowledge”, well, it could not be more perfect or better timed.

    What does it all mean, spiritually speaking?

    A working Quantum Computer, naturally speaking, would be the ultimate “upgrade“!

    It may come sooner than you think.

    Read the first post for what that means spiritually speaking.

    “The Sycamore Chip”

    It’s interesting that the 54-qubits computer chip is called, “The Sycamore processor“.

    We designed a quantum processor named ‘Sycamore’ which consists of a two-dimensional array of 54 transmon qubits, where each qubit is tunably coupled to four nearest neighbors, in a rectangular lattice.

    The sycamore tree is a common metaphor in the Bible. In the context of the below verse, it reflects the same spirit as those that built the Tower of Babel.

    “The bricks have fallen down, But we will rebuild with hewn stones; The sycamores are cut down, But we will replace them with cedars.” Isaiah 9:10
